The Finest Minds



The reading of all good books is like a conversation with the finest minds of past centuries. This is according to Rene Descartes and he is most correct. In an era when Facebook is considered heavy reading by many, it is far more beneficial to read what the great minds, the great philosophers have said through the centuries,  even if you do not agree with them, it will stir the mind and wipe away the cobwebs. As has been said many times by many, those who do not learn from the past are doomed to repeat it.
